It seems like Bethesda and Sony have figured out how to get mod support on PlayStation 4. Last month, we reported that this was looking to no longer be the case as both companies couldn’t figure out how to support the mod ecosystem on PlayStation 4 and hope of modding both Skyrim and Fallout 4 was dwindling.
There is a catch though, and as quoted below you can only create mods with existing Bethesda content. What this means is you can’t import outside assets into the game, so don’t plan on trying to get Thomas the Tank into either game, or Hulk Hogan. It’s unfortunate we won’t be able to get such great ideas into the game, but, maybe down the line we will see both companies find a way to allow this to happen.
We’re excited to announce that mod support is coming to PlayStation 4 for both Skyrim Special Edition and Fallout 4. Additionally, we’ll also be supporting the new PlayStation 4 Pro with both titles.
Skyrim will have these features when it launches on October 28. The new power of the PlayStation 4 Pro has allowed us to make Skyrim render in native 4k, and it looks better than ever. Here are some screens to show you just how great it looks.
Mod support will come to Skyrim first. We and Sony have worked hard to make this possible. Mods on PlayStation 4 will allow you to modify and create your own content by using our Creation Kit available here. You will not be able to upload external assets with your PlayStation 4 mods, but you will be able to use any assets that come with the game, as most mods do. By creating a Bethesda.net account, you’ll be able to browse and try mods right from within the game.
